FREE TIPS: CREATING BEAUTIFUL BROWS FOR MATURE SKIN

We all know the beauty industry can be very superficial, and with that comes social media with a ton of emphasis on 20-somethings. What's worse is trainers not focusing on teaching how to work on mature skin, and babe...THAT'S A HUGE MISTAKE! Older clients tend to have the disposable income needed for luxury beauty services, and a network of friends and colleagues they will refer to you. So why not learn how to master their brows?

"I was able to take a training provided by Nneka and OMG it was the best training I’ve taken. As a PMU artist, it is very important to continue education and know the right/ wrong things when it comes to this industry. I learned so much from her course and I feel like my own artistry has improved tremendously. 10/10 would recommend! Also Nneka is just amazing! Love that I will be able to reach out to her if I need anything!"

Mariela M.

"Had the best PMU training and follow up with Nneka. She is an amazing instructor who not only teaches you how to work on clients but she is very detailed about all the business and licensing information you will ever need to be a successful artist. I fully recommend to anyone looking to start in this beautiful industry."
